ABOUT THE TOUR
This bike tour takes place on the territory of Algeti National Park. From Tbilisi we will drive to Kiketi village, where we will descend to Kabeni Monastery, located in the upper reaches of the gorge of river Asuretis-tskhali, by the ancient path of the monks. In the small church, which stands almost in the center of the ruins of the monastery, there are several surviving inscriptions near the altar window. The meaning of the two inscriptions is difficult to establish, and from the third it follows that the sons of a certain George completed the construction of the church during the reign of Tamara. Therefore, this temple is dated fairly accurately. Kabensky temple is one of the outstanding works of Georgian architecture from the first half of the 13th century.
Further, our path leads to the church of forty great martyrs (founded in the 16th century). There begins the ascent to the medieval fortress Korogli aka Agarani and Kodzhris-tsikhe. The fortress is located on Azeula mountain with a panoramic view of the entire Trialeti Range. Leaving the transport at the top, participants will have the opportunity to feel like a Seljuk invader, climbing the steep stairs that were built for easier access to the sights.
We'll finish the route in Tbilisi in the Vake Park area, where more than 10-kilometer descent from the old Ujo Church will take us.
